It's an amazing shoe.
These, here, are just amazing shoes and I can't say enough good things about them. Definitely check them out.
When it comes down to it, I’m on my second pair now, so clearly the functionality vs durability trade-off is one I’m willing to make.
For a durable, fairly grippy and very well structured shoe that offers lots of support, the La Sportiva Ultra Raptors are really good. - See more at: http://www.runultra.co.uk/Reviews/Products/Kit-review-La-Sportiva-Ultra-Raptor
That first run up the canyon was fun. I got up so high that I eventually was on snow for a few miles before I turned around and headed back down.
It'll keep up with you and withstand pretty much anything you throw at it.
- The La Sportiva Ultra Raptor features the Impact Brake lugged system that is specifically designed to lessen the landing impact and improved the traction for downhill and uphill runs.
- It also comes with an enhanced outsole where the sticky rubber compound is strategically located, delivering impressive traction and grip on technical and rocky terrains.
- This shoe also comes with a heel pocket cushioning that delivers added durability and comfortable fit for a long-lasting running performance.
The Ultra Raptor is true to its size. The heel, midfoot and forefoot areas are of standard measurements, giving a snug and comfortable fit. The men’s and women’s version is available in medium and wide widths.
The Ultra Raptor from La Sportiva features the brand’s FriXion XF outsole that delivers full-length durable traction specifically designed for rocky and technical terrain. This functions with the aggressive impact lugs engineered to lessen landing impact for a more stable and responsive ride. The rock guard in the forefoot gives added foot protection from rock bruises while running on rocky terrain.
The midsole unit of the shoe uses injected molded EVA that delivers a moderate amount of cushioning. It also uses the Flex Transfer Shank that is specifically designed for torsional rigidity.
The upper of the La Sportiva Ultra Raptor is very breathable because of the air mesh cover that encompasses almost the entire upper. The flexible material offers a sublime fit. The lacing harness extends from the lacing eyelets to the midsole for a snug fit. In contrast, the Salomon Speedcross 5 utilizes nylon mesh in its upper.
